About

     Novus is a world torn asunder, rebuilding after a torrent of supernatural energy called the Maelstrom that struck it over one hundred years ago. Players will take on the role of a heroic character striving to defeat the evils that now plague the world, and, if successful, they will become a Legend of Novus.

Risks and challenges

In 2018 the card game Duel of the Dragons was successfully funded and fulfilled via Kickstarter by FunDaMental Games. I used this small scale campaign to introduce myself to the Creator side of Kickstarter, and be involved from game design all the way to fulfillment and post-game discussions about how the backers felt about the games components, mechanics, art, and graphic design. This provided me with knowledge and skills that I could not fully learn from podcasts, blogs, facebook groups, and youtube videos (although I still intake all of those on a regular basis to continue to develop and understand more about game design). Feel free to look it up and see how the campaign, updates, and comments went (https://kck.st/2BeFh4h).
I have done significant research, planning, and learning from industry experts to prepare for this campaign and ensure its success, and I am confident both in the quality of this game and my ability to deliver it on time.
That being said, there are risks associated with every campaign.
To minimize these risks, I have partnered with two reliable and highly praised industry leaders for manufacturing and fulfillment to ensure a high quality game and timely delivery of pledge rewards.
I am open to discussing concerns either in the Comments section, or in personal chats via FB messenger or email. If the same question comes up repetitively I will make sure to add it to the FAQ section as well.
Thank you for your time in reading this far into the KS, I appreciate your time and interest, even if you choose not to back this!
